2017 Smoke Free Ontario Act
Submitted By Admin on Monday, May 1, 2017
As you may know on November 7th, 2014, Ontario announced its plans to implement new provisions in Ontario Regulation 48/06 under the Smoke-free Ontario Act.

Effective January 1st, 2015, it will be illegal to smoke on bar and restaurant patios and to smoke on playgrounds and sports fields.  Specifically, smoking will be prohibited:

·        within 20 meters of outdoor recreational amenities (outdoor swimming pools, splash pads, courts, playground equipment, sand boxes, outdoor ice rinks, etc);

·        within 20 meters of sports fields (soccer pitches, ball diamonds, football fields, beach volleyball courts, running tracks, etc); and,

·        within 20 meters of spectator areas adjacent to sporting areas and any public areas within 20 metres of any point on the perimeter of a sporting area or a spectator area adjacent to a sporting area.

 The regulatory amendments pertain to outdoor recreational amenity, sports fields and spectator areas owned by the Province or a municipality, by an agent of the Province or a municipality, or by a post-secondary institution.
